Javier Cortés

Born in Mexico City, Javier Cortés’s earliest memories are of attending oil painting classes with his grandmother.

Cortés’s love for visual arts let him to obtain a BFA, Summa Cum Laude, from Boston University’s College of Fine Arts. While there he studied drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography.

Cortés splits his time between Boston and Provincetown, with his partner Lawrence and old English bulldogs Jasper B. Johns and Vivienne B. Westwood.
